My simple boring wastebasket here at Green Head HQ is a about to get replaced, because I have found its worthy successor. The Claremont Helmet - Lidded Bin is basically a knight's helmet from a suit of armor reworked into the ultimate medieval wastebasket. Simply lift up the visor and toss in your litter. I don't think this can ever be topped as far as cool wastebaskets go, this is really way up there.
You could also use this as a bathroom wastebasket if you paired it up with the Medieval Toilet Seat. All that would be missing then would be chain mail shower curtains. I promise I'll find those eventually.
